Application of the up-to-date knowledge in the area of technologies into the production practice within the context of international economic situation raises the need for re-evaluation of the content of technical education. Education should be in concord with the current practice demands, better in advance. To rethink and to improve information flow it is the way to do it. Nowadays, the core of technical education is united in understanding of principal trends and demands for education. On the other side, there is an obvious clash of interests when talking of various conditions for practical realization of educational intention.
